M19 Setup Guide And Best Attachments For Your Class in Modern Warfare



The M19 pistol in Modern Warfare is the perfect sub-weapon in Season 5 for the more aggressive players, thanks to its semi-automatic firing mechanism and its fast fire rate.

This compact pistol is excellent in melee combat thanks to its ability to use it similar to a semi-automatic assault rifle. At a further range, it could be used but it needed some discipline to trigger and aim accurately.

M19 Stats


The M19 is a semi-automatic pistol in the Modern War. It is most likely based on the M17 or M18 pistol made by Sig Sauer Inc for the US Army.


  • Head: 61-48
  • Upper Chest: 36-28
  • Lower Chest: 30-24

M19 Top Tips


All Out Aggression

Thanks to a high amount of damage and equipped with a fast-firing trigger, playing with speed and aggression can lead to many high-killing games. The rate of fire can compete with sub-machine gunners at close range, making this secondary rifle a perfect addition to the assault rifle for you to have the best combination at long range and short.


Instead of spending most of the game’s time on passive aiming (ADS), it’s easy to react quickly to a target when using the M19. Switching to your pistol is always faster than reloading your primary weapon, so use its fast ADS speed to capture oncoming enemies.

Aim for The Head!

Equipping pre-mo ‘as a weapon prerogative means ensuring a headshot will give you increased XP. The low recoil level and clear iron sights make aiming a shot in the head very easy compared to some of the other pistols in the game. The combination of fast fire rate and low recoil makes the kill time very fast when aiming at the upper half of the body.
